Malta Pavilion is located in Yıldız Park on the east side of the wall that separates of Yıldız Palace. Here one can also find observation and resting pavilion in the grove that is the rear garden of Çırağan Palace: these date from the Abdulaziz I period. Malta Pavilion sits on a terrrace that provides an expansive view to the north. The orign of the name is not known, but it is thought that during the Ottoman era certain parts of the places were called after the names of areas that had been conquered, so this name could have been given after the conquest of Malta.

Sultan Abdulhamit connected the pavilion to Yıldız Palace and used it for resting and entertainting the palace residents. Like other pavilions at Yıldız Palace, Malta Pavilion has witnessed historic events.

In 1878, Ali Suavi tried to overthrow Abdulhamid II and bring Murad V to powet with the “Çırağan Raid.” When the attempt failed, Sultan Abdulhamid sen Murat V to this pavilion for security reasons, effectively keeping him here under house arrest.
